The City of Owen Sound is undertaking a Transit Optimization Review to assess the existing transit service delivery model and identify areas of improvement to optimize the City's transit system.

This Transit Optimization Review will analyze and evaluate the overall functionality of the City's existing fixed-route system. This includes current route coverage, ridership, on-time performance, and other elements to support the core service delivery of transit.

The City will be seeking input into what the ideal transit system will look like for the City of Owen Sound. Ongoing project information about the transit study is available on the City of Owen Sound website.
